among them. someone like john kerry, not personally close to the president, not a champion in the building, she was always the person who had the inside track. this is a fight and to the point that hugo made, i think the republicans think this is a fight worth happening, not that she went out there -- forget what john mccain's personal invective, not that she spoke off the cuff but reading from talking points and their argument is those talks points were designed to mislead the american people. there's no question, i don't think there's anybody in the administration that think that period was well handled by the administration in terms of what it knew about what happened, how it conveyed it to the american people. it's been bubbling for weeks, it's true that they are going to personalize it on her. the question to alex, alex's question, at this point do you want to fight this battle and my guess is there's going to be at lot of whipping and the question is going to be, i think they will fight this bat physical they think they can win it. if they think they are going to lose

know what they want to be secretary of state? john kerry. and we know that you know, this is from anastacia who writes this. these two men are trying to get scott brown back in the senate and trashing susan rice to get kerry as secretary of state. i could not agree more, ans at a sha. the liberals are all afraid if you make john kerry john kerry secretary of state scott brown he's sitting there in his truck in massachusetts, he's got a big fund raising apparatus he's ready to campaign. he has the ground organization ready. and he will just try to snatch up john kerry's seat. you know what? the folks in massachusetts might go ahead and vote for him just to watch him and elizabeth warren have to be colleagues together after their ugly campaign. voters have done much sillier things. i was in california when austrian weightlifter got to be governor. i think that's a really good point. i think you're seeing them doing everything they can to make sure the president doesn't even try to nominate susan ric
financier, boone pickens, these were the funders of the swiftboat veterans against john kerry. they've been with him a long time. he clearly promised them something in the 2012 race you, and he had not delivered. >> he doesn't issue a mea culpa, but gives an unbelievable excuse. he writing -- i'm quoting him now -- mr. obama was ruthlessly efficient in executing an early negative campaign. the president was also lucky. this time the october surprise was not a dirty trick but an act of got. hurricane sandy interrupted mr. romney's momentum and allowed mr. obama to look presidential and bipartisan. so let me get this right. the -- mr. romney was soundly beaten both in the popular vote and the electoral college and the swing states that mattered the most? and it was all because of hurricane sandy? >> yeah, i think a less charitable person might be saying "and the dog ate my homework." in the 1980s, karl rove, a young political operative working in a democratic environment put together a memo. he explained how he was going to make the democrat ectexas political establishment a republican electo
be replaced by another former presidential candidates. massachusetts senator john kerry. chairman of the foreign relations committee. another candidate, tom donolin and perhaps another controversial choice, susan rice. she was the obama administration's representative who gave the initial incorrect intelligence of the benghazi attacks. still most insiders believe rice and kerry are the two insiders. clinton's eventual replacement will be on solid ground. >> the advantage over a president who has got their bearings about what they want to accomplish around the world. >> reporter: at treasury, the top candidate to replace tim geithner, white house chief of staff jack lew who also served the president as the budget director. the president may decide to keep lew where he is and look else where. at the pentagon, leen panetta's departure probably won't happen unit thill spring but the short list includes michelle flournoy who served as the policy chief during the president's first term. she would be the first woman to head defense. jack reed a west point graduate and veteran of the arme
neeratt tandon massachusetts senator john kerry, susan rice, national security adviser tom donilon. although there's been talk about the benghazi attacks may have hurt her chances. is kerry the front runner? >> kerry has a lot going for him because he has negotiated around the world. he's been senate foreign relations chair. he obviously spent a lot of time with the president. we shouldn't underestimate how important @ to have a real chemistry with the president. there's a lot of trust to develop. obviously president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton had a great chemistry and really relied on each other. there was a trust built up there. so i think that's the real test is whether the president can really trust john kerry to speak for him and he e spent a lot of time with him recently. so i think he has a good sense of that by now. >> there's been a lot of talk about by the president about bipartisanship. this is one area where people have suggested maybe he'd reach across the aisle and pick a republican. names mentioned included jon huntsman, chuck hagel and colin powell
democrats that joined obama's team. host: that question -- raises questions about whether john kerry could be picked as secretary of state. guest: if john kerry is collected, you have an election, and who would run for that seat? scott brown. host: "christian science monitor" headline -- "paul ryan returns to house -- is he ready for a bigger role in the gop?" guest: there is speculation that he is interested in staying on. he appears to be one of the few willing to take the difficult decisions, what ever the political fallout is. even the budget document, there is a bottom line, and everyone can see what the projected deficits are if these choices are made, where the cuts are. it is something paul ryan has been willing to do and that puts him in the heart of every important decision that the house will have to make this session. i think he has definitely kept himself in the heart of it. leadership appears to be willing to give him a waiver. i do not think he's going anywhere. host: dog to sit, your publication has this had lied -- bob to set, your publication has ?ck -- bob cus guest: a
the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, the mccain campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the super pac effort. then you had -- i guess the final thing i would say is having the economy kind o
, when john kerry ran against george w. bush, the proportion of the electorate that was white, according to the exit polls, was 79%. 79 and everyone hundred voters were non-hispanic white. four years later, and in 2008, that number had declined to 74%. this year, that number declined to 72%. in the meantime, the african- american share of the vote over that time increased from 11 to 13. the hispanic share from six to 10. and the asian american share from one to three. we are experiencing serious demographic change. if you look at these different populations, the white population, the non-spec white population in the united states is a seat -- it aging. the median age is 42. that means half the white people in the united states are older than 42. the median age for the black population is 33. the median age for the hispanic population is 25. half the hispanic population in the united states right now is the younger than 25 years old. what does that mean? it would not mean anything if our politics and parties were not largely based upon race and class and ethnicity. right now, they are. th
. >>> president barack obama may be asking senator john kerry to be his next defense secretary. the president is considering a rearrangement of his national security team. according to reports, kerry would prefer to be secretary of state but that job will almost positively be offered to suzanne rice. >>> the president was elected to a second term and at least two want to leave the united states. we will tell you more about a petition that is hitting the white house and what several states are demanding from the president. >>> in overnight news, they braved the cold weather getting their hands on one of the hottest games of the year. this was the scene in san francisco where 400 people were lined up on market street. they were there for the new call of duty block operations 2 and -- black ops 2. >> i seen some of it and i really liked it so i came to buy it. >> some came as early as 5:30 to get their hands on the game. >> also out in antioch, dozens of people came to get that game and according to a survey, one in four people are expected to call in sick today to now play their new game. >> an
, they favor john kerry as the next secretary of state. they work well with him and think he has the experience. i don't think it has to do with her womanhood. beyond that, this is shaping up as a nasty fight. it could get quite personal. and i think everybody has an interest and sort of we just had an election and we are trying to create a bipartisanship in washington. and i think she may have to do some private rounds and that would help a lot. >> a lot of talk about the impending fiscal cliff. did you hear anything from the president that sounded like a compromise that would work? >> not today. this is a president who clearly feels that he has got a lot of leverage now. i heard that in the president today. and what he was doing was -- and dan i can talk more about this, calling the republican bluff. saying one thing that we all agree on is extending the tax cuts for the middle class. they believe that if they were to do that, they would lose their leverage but the president was saying okay guys, let's do this and then we'll move onto the second step of the process. and i agree with david. i'
of the most powerful voices of criticism of president obama when it comes to foreign policy. john kerry, same thing, but no place in politics, no elective office that mitt romney holds. i don't see where he easily fits back into the party. >> he can become a cable tv host. one of those networks out there. what do you think? you think he has -- a lot of the republican party today, he's gone, over, history. it sounded like a valedictory. he was sort of going to recede, did it twice. tried, lost and there were a lot of people who recorded him as a transitional figure even when he was nominee of the party. so i think he'll go back to business, maybe to bayne capital, who knows? i don't see politics in his future. >> what about paul ryan? will he just pick up where he left off? or do you see him broaden out? >> he has time. listen, he has something that is very hard for a house member to get and that is nationwide recognition. he is also a bonafide brainiac with budget things. you may not agree with what he likes to do with the budget, but he understand. so there is still a place for him there. he
senator john kerry, head of the senate foreign relations committee would be interested in a job, though his open senate seat would trigger another special election in massachusetts. the democrats holding a solid majority in the senate, it could be something the white house would be open to explore. >> maybe the president is willing to into the possibility of using -- losing a senate seat if you want some bad enough. >> treasury secretary timothy geithner expressed his desire to return to private life. whiskey tax cuts set to expire and sequestration living, his departure is slated to be delayed. >> people like secretary geithner have put a lot of energy into the issues related to the fiscal cliff, and they're going to want to see it through. >> the same is true of defense secretary leon panetta who pled with congress to find a solution to automatic cuts that could be devastating to the pentagon. today a spokesman shot down talk of his departure. >> the secretary is focused squarely on his job today. focused on the missions, the department of defense command not his personal situation. >
're psyched you're not running again for your house seat. if john kerry, senator from massachusetts or duval patrick the state's governor, takes a cabinet job in this administration, would you make yourself available for the governorship or senate seat in massachusetts? >> no. it's flattering people mentioned it. the senate seat, i'm 72 years old. i don't think at 72 you commit yourself to a six year term. i hope i'll be healthy and jim keeps me healthy. no. i want to write. i want to be involved in the debate without having to march in parades, to be honest and without having people scream what i say, you're just a politician. i'm very happy splitting my time between jim and my house in maine and do some teaching. i want to be a participant in the public debate with a little less responsibility. >> i expect to be talking to you at this table when you're 150. barney frank, thank you very much for being here. >>> the things we learn this week, women voters have their own ideas, coming up next. .at te world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers...
, and i do think underneath here, there isn't as much confidence with susan rice. they favor john kerry as next secretary of state. they think he has the requisite experience. i don't think it has anything to do with her womanhood. it goes to confidence. this is a nasty fight. could could get very personal, it could go mondano-o-mano. it is very personal. we are trying to create a sense of bipartisanship to get this calmed down. i think the president would send some quiet elm sears up to capitol hill to see if he has the votes to avoid a filibuster. and i think she would have to do some private rounds that will help a lot perhaps in defuzzing some of this. >> a lot of talk about the impending fiscal cliff. congressional leaders headed to the white house for high-level talks on this. did you hear anything that sounded like a compromise? >> not today. but, look this is a president that clearly feels that he's got a lot of leverage now. and while i heard that in the president today and what he was doing was essentially, and dana can talk more about this than i can, calling the republican c
of this, there is not as much confidence with susan rice as with republicans. they favor john kerry as the next secretary of state. they work well with him, and they think he has the requisite experience. i don't think that it has to do with her womanhood, but goes down to the confidence question. this is shaping up as a very nasty fight. it could get quite personal. it could go mano-o-mano. it is very personal. we are trying to create a sense of bipartisanship to get this calmed down. what the president needs to do, i think, is to have some quiet emissaries up on capitol hill to see if he has the votes to beat a filibuster, and i think she would have to do some private rounds that will help a lot in defusing this. >> a lot of talk about the impending fiscal cliff. congressional leaders headed to the white house for the high-level talks on this. did you hear anything that sounded like a compromise? >> no, not today. and this is not to say we won't. but, look, this is a president that clearly feels that he's got a lot of leverage now. and while i --i heard that in the president today
of speculation that john kerry could be the next secretary of state. you know what that would lead to? within six months we could have a special election in massachusetts for another u.s. senate. >> interesting how that happens sometimes. we showed the screen, what is that about? >> very quickly, i know you love this thing, the most expensive electoral vote, we thought we would let you know what it was between the parties. in the state of iowa, maybe more money spent in virginia, but per electoral votes, $12 million for the electoral votes. i think people should know that the virginia senate race cost almost $80 million, the massachusetts senate race, just over $70 million, a little perspective here, 12 years ago. bush and gore, when they ran for president both spent less than that just on their general election budgets, that was for president, this is what senate races cost now. >> all right, chuck todd with the good, the bad and the ugly and some of the damage from last night. chuck, thanks, we'll be talking about this for a long time. when we come back, this really was the election the whole w
an announcement or if there is an announcement that john kerry going to be named secretary of state, in which case there will be a special election down the road for that senate seat, and you will see scott brown become the great conciliator as he prepares for the election. for others, they will continue to take their clothes from what the leaders say or what the members do. there the question is whether mcconnell basically becomes at least five things a more passive actor and lets lamar alexander and bob corker and tom coburn take the lead and doing something that he will oppose in the end, cause he is mindful of 2014, as tom said. or whether you do not get that kind of impact and mcconnell works overtime to yank its members back into a tougher and negotiating position. if that is the case, we go right over the cliff. >> i think mitch mcconnell will not be able to sustain unified republican support behind filibusters over the long -- clusters. >> over the long, it may work to the lame-duck session, but the on but it, it is no longer possible. but norm's scenario of the quiet person in the back sp
it comes to foreign policy. john kerry, same thing, but no place in politics, no elective office that mitt romney holds. i don't see where he easily fits back into this party at this point. >> he can become a cable tv host. >> who knows. >> with one of those networks out there. what do you think? you think he has -- a lot of the republican party today -- >> he's gone, he's over, history. it w it sounded like a valedictory. he didn't talk about our cause will live, we're going to continue to fight in the future. it was sort of like he was going to recede, he had done it twice, he lost. there are a lot of people who regarded him as the transitional figurine when he was the nominee of the party. so i think he'll go back to business, maybe to bain capital, who knows. i don't see politics in his future. >> what about paul ryan? he's long been considered one of the rising stars of the republican congress. will he just pick up where he left off? or do you see him try to broaden out, claim the mantle of the party standard bearer? >> he has time. listen, he has something that is very hard for a hou

questions that have to do with simple justice. >> talk about nonpolitical. senator john kerry, a democrat, on the -- on the -- chairman of the forerelations committee. he has sent two letters to the state department, requesting congressional access to documents and information leading up to the attack. there is another democratic u.s. senator who says, where is this information and he is trying to get it. >> he will keep expanding until they decide that they're going to be transparent about this. the longer they wait, the more you wonder, where request are they waiting? what is there? what are they worried about? why don't they want to put all the facts out? >> i ready that congressman ru thesburger, a democrat, is starring to ask a lot of questions. >> we have seen this happen before. i hate to mention watergate. but we have seen this before. sometimes the coverup can be worse than the act. although it's pretty hard to get worse than we lose four brave americans and maybe there was something we could have done. leading up to that in which we could have prevented it. it's pretty hard to g
on this issue, massachuses senator john kerry. what had happened to all the momentum of four years ago? >> well, american politics is being completely defined by huge sums of money. we had really a very broad coalition of people who believed that we ought to move forward and do something. but as the campaign of fear built up, people began to retreat. they spent huge sums of money in a campaign of major disinformation that had an impact, had a profound impact. and it has now made many people in public life very gun-shy, because they're afraid of having those amounts of money spent against them. >> hockenberry: this is what they fear: what happened in 2010 to six-term south carolina congressman bob inglis, a republican who once thought he was a safe incumbent in his solidly red state. >> you know, i'm a pretty conservative fella. i got 93 american conservative union rating, 100% christian coalition, 100% national right to life, "a" with the nra. zero with the ada, americans for democratic action, a liberal group. an23 by some mistake with the afl-cio. i demand a recount. i wanted a zero. >> hocke
benghazi and her appearance on "meet the press" during the confirmation hearings. john kerry is another huge option, but that would open up the seat in massachusetts for the united states senate. perhaps scott brown would come roaring back and grab that one. i don't think either of these issues should get in the way of the president picking the best secretary of state. chuck hagel is said to be under consideration for defense. at the treasury department jack lew, our friend, is the favorite to replace tim geithner we hear. and we will be right back. >>> we might be retiring that particular logo now because it may well be that the dirty money didn't get anywhere this election. back to "hardball" for some good news for people who don't like too much money in politics. outside of mitt romney, karl rove might have been the biggest loser this election day. two days ago the political wizard spent the night on fox news denying reality as the returns came in on ohio and he couldn't believe them. wouldn't believe them. he also had a surprising lack of success when it came to the spending by his
turnout rates or will there be slippage there if you have a john kerry type of candidate that didn't perform well. >> you have all your kind of used and worried about the imprecations of the republican party of an election, almost exactly like what we ended up seeing where the nominee was able to generate a landslide margin among whites but previously had produced an electoral landslide, ronald reagan in 80 and bush in 88 and eisenhower and comparable margins among whites. what are the implications for the party of romney losing while reaching that level? >> ron, the demographics that we have all discussed have been obvious for a long time. the proportion of whites in the national electorate over the last four presidential campaigns has gone 81, 77, 74, 72. this is not a secret. sometimes the obvious does not become apparent until we have an election like this but now the obvious is readily apparent to anyone particularly any republicans who don't have their heads on. mitt romney did extremely well among whites as you said. he won whites by a landslide yet he still lost the electio
at dinner. the problem that he is going to have, though, frankly, if john kerry were to good over to state department, as appears likely, a lot of folks, particularly within the senate would like to see him run for the senate. they would like to bring him in. it helps with showing sort of the diversity gap between themselves and the gop, which i think harry reid is very eager to demonstrate. and he is really the only person right now in the state that could beat scott brown in a special election. none of the house members really have the name id or the sort of the juice to do it. so he is really the one. >> who else do you think, boyce? who else do you think goes? who comes? >> i think the most interesting one is state, what is going to happen. hillary clinton is obviously out. is it going to be kerry? if it is kerry, you have to look at the state of massachusetts. duval patrick would appoint himself. and there would be an election. to me that's just as important. i thought janet napolitano is someone who is at the top of the list. but she is someone who is considered to be pretty partisan
? >> that will be an interest of a lot of people on the right to define it as a dismal failure. i think it was as dismal as john kerry. the difference between romney losing and bush winning is just the democratic shift in the country from 2004-2012. looking that where the republicans go, again and, the best way to approach this is to try to figure out how you deal with the key groups. with the help of todd akin and mourdock, you look. there are small parts. immigration and his veering onto the right and his unwillingness to have a discussion with latino voters. and then with african-american voters, all the talk about voter suppression or democrats trying to keep to increase the turnover tremendously. >> i would be really interested to hear on some of this. one, in the primary, and one in the general were a thought, "really?" in the debate with rick perry, he attacked rick perry and moved to the right of him for signing a dream act in texas. that would have been the first one. it may have worked in the primary but it had long-term consequences. the second was saying more than once he was going to get rid of pla
john kerry or al gore did. president obama won in some key swing states with predominantly white voters. many of them live in the suburbs or rural areas. take iowa, where white voters made up 93% of the electorate. more than half of those voters, 51%, backed president obama to 47% for romney. it was the same breakdown in new hampshire where white voters were also 93% of the electorate and 51% voted for president obama. there's also the fact that many new hampshire voters live in rural areas, yet president obama won those rural voters by 16 points, 57-41%. as all the numbers suggest, it's not quite as simple as congressman ryan suggests. urban voters can't take all the credit for the president's win. joining me now is cnn contributor david frum who has a lot to say about this. his new ebook is "why romney lost." he joins me along with paul begala and alex castellano. liberals have been critical of ryan's comments about urban areas. what do you think of it? >> i don't want to ascribe any sort of dog whistle to it. let's just actually use the language he did, which is geographic. he's just
